Kraw Lecture: Climate Controversies and Changepoints

Join Professor and Chair of the Statistics Department Robert Lund for an introduction to the problem of changepoints in climatology and the hazards they induce. Changepoints, where measurements shift abruptly, are often caused by station relocations or instrumentation changes. Lund will discuss the methods data scientists use to detect and deal with changepoints in climate records. He will then use changepoint methods to explore a recent climate controversy about hurricanes and how they are likely to change as the climate gets warmer. Professor of Statistics and Vice Provost for Academic Affairs Herbert Lee will join us and moderate our conversation.
